HIIT exercise regime to lose weight
« on: October 22, 2015, 11:31:43 am »
Hi hi! sharing of your exercise regime?

I do HIIT coz its most effective to lose weight, must better than running or swimming for long hours.
HIIT = high intensity interval training.
they push your body to high alert mode, and make it burn a lot more energy even when u are not exercising.
Better than running because your body gets more and more efficient in running and burn less and less energy.

Here is what I do.

Stationary bike
10 minutes of cycling in total

Pedal intensively like siao for 20 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds.
Do this for 20 times.

A total of 10 minutes would have lapsed and you would be very tired (if you had not cheated and really push yourself to the limit for each 20 secs)

Rest for 2 - 3 minutes, just walk around and cool off.

Walk on inclined slope for 30 - 40 minutes
The slope does not need to be so inclined till steeply tough.
just a bit of slope, and i use treadmill...... its not difficult to walk on a slope, but the 10minutes cycle u did is activating your body to burn energy.

If i am not at a gym for this, but at home, I will tend go take lift to groundfloor and slowly and casually walk up the stairs....

I think this is one of the best HIIT i can find!
Hope it helps!

Loving life here!

I've tried 2 Hiit routines

1st version was by some fitness group

50 sets of burpees ,1 min break ,  50 sit ups ,1 min break ,  50 squats
followed by 40 / 30 / 20

Got so tired I was reluctant to continue it for long

Another routine : 30 seconds of activity , 10 seconds rests
1) squat
2) crunches
3) push up
4) running plank
5) burpee
6) back extension.
twice before I run a little.

Stopped due to haze , probably won't continue as I've signed up for gym membership   :-[

Try this website www.bodyrock.tv or even zuzuka light - she's got some youtube videos named Zwows numbering from 1 to 70-ish. I love the latter - she does it real time with you...so you've got that motivation going on if you're that kind who can't do workouts alone.

I'm religiously following their workouts, and within a month I'm already seeing results. But that's if and only if you eat healthy and clean as often as possible... which is always the hardest part of getting to your desired body shape.  :-\

But there's cheat days - so i'd say it's pretty manageable.

Thanks for sharing. HIIT is more flexible in some way.

I have downloaded the app NTC and Keep that have all kinds of HIIT courses ranged in difficulty. I hated running and followed the HIIT plan and now I have decrease the body fat percentage.
Happy!!!! This kind of app works perfectly for someone like me that has less exercise before.
